If you’ve never tried peanut butter in a smoothie before, you are really missing out. This Banana Peanut Butter smoothie is so quick, very healthy and no chopping required.
I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve ever had peanut butter in a smoothie. I’ve really been missing out.
This smoothie was so rich, creamy and distinctly peanut buttery, so if you like peanut butter, you’ll adore this recipe. It’s also so simple and quick, no messing around, no rinsing fruit, no chopping, just throw it all in the blender.
This smoothie also doesn’t have any added sweeteners which is a bonus. It really doesn’t need them.
What could be better than this smoothie to start your morning?

Do your children drink green smoothies? This peanut butter smoothie will be a winner for them.
My 11 month old (at the time of writing) baby drinks a green thickie every morning, and she usually agrees with me about how good it is. If I don’t like it, she generally doesn’t like it either.
I think babies must have a very good sense of smell too as sometimes she won’t even try it at all if it’s not a nice recipe. If she doesn’t like the smell she won’t like the taste. She finished up this smoothie very quickly so I could tell she loved it.
We’ve started teaching her sign language and it’s adorable watching her using them. She tells me, no she doesn’t want any more water, and when she’s had enough to eat she tells me she’s finished. It’s great for her to be able to finally communicate with us so well.
Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie: Green Thickie
- 1 Cup Water
- 1 Cup Dairy Free Milk Like this
- 3-4 Bananas
- 2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter Like this
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract Like this
- Optional: 1 Cup Oats Like this or one of the other 20 fillers. Click here to see the fillers
- Optional: 1 Cup Spinach tightly packed or 2 cups loosely packed (or Kale or any other mild greens)
- Buy Good Quality Smoothie Ingredients at the Village Green Marketplace
- Blend the ingredients in the following order:
- 1. Blend the dry ingredients and liquid first for a short time
- 2. Blend the greens next for a short time (if using)
- 3. Blend the fruit and the rest of the ingredients until smooth (or as smooth as your blender will allow. High speed blenders may need 2 minutes for a Green Thickie, less powerful blenders may need a lot more, sometimes 5-10 minutes)
- More tips:
- Blending this way allows the dry ingredients to be blended for longest, it means the greens will fit in your blender and your fruit gets less blending so it doesn’t become too hot.
- - Add more water if required to thin it out.
- - Substitute any of the ingredients for whatever you already have.
- - If your smoothie is too warm, you can cool it down in the fridge or freeze some of your ingredients before blending. You can also replace half of the liquids with ice. Add the ice at the end. It is better to add frozen ingredients at the end to cool the smoothie down.
- How much should I drink to replace a meal?
- - Only use a meal replacement if you’ve added the oats/quinoa.
- - This Green Thickie serves 2 so you should DRINK HALF OF THIS RECIPE. But if you have higher calorie requirements you may need to drink more.
- Suitable for Special Diets:
- - Gluten free (Use GF Oats or Quinoa)
- - Raw (Use raw oats/quinoa)
- - Vegetarian, vegan, dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free, wheat free, soya free (don’t use soya milk or tofu),

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
